z8751 VSG

6 GHz Vector Signal Generator

The z8751 Vector Signal Generator combines an I/Q Arbitrary Waveform Generator with an RF signal source to generate vector modulated signals from DC to 6 GHz.

The z8751 provides a combination of 500 MHz modulation bandwidth, 16-bit DAC dynamic range, very high linearity and very low phase noise necessary to test and characterize the latest and next generation of wireless standards including 802.11ax 1024QAM.

Key Specifications

  • 6 GHz RF Vector Signal Generator for analog or digitally-modulated RF signal generation
  • Up to 500 MHz modulation bandwidth
  • LO input for ultra-low phase noise requirements
  • Separate baseband I/Q outputs and LO input for modulator RFIC testing (optimized for broad bandwidth vector modulation)

Remarkable Test Capabilities

Portable & Efficient Modular Instrument

  • Combined RF and baseband I/Q VSG in 2-slot 3U PXI/PXIe modular instrument
  • Reduced test time through fast RF switching and deep multiple-waveform memory
